    AlmaLinux, CloudLinux's new business Linux distro based on RHEL and CentOS, will be released in the first quarter of 2021.

     

    When Red HatCentOS's Linux parent company, announced it was "shifting focus from CentOS Linux, the rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), to CentOS Stream, which tracks just ahead of a current RHEL release," the move ticked off many people. So, CloudLinux immediately announced it would create a new CentOS clone, Lenix, and that it would put over a million dollars a year behind the new Linux distribution. Now, it has a new name, AlmaLinux, and a more concrete plan. 

    CloudLinux is doing this, Igor Seletskiy, CEO and founder, explained, because: "The demise of the CentOS stable release left a very large gap in the Linux community which prompted CloudLinux to step in and launch a CentOS alternative. For CloudLinux it was an obvious move: The Linux community was in need. AlmaLinux is built with CloudLinux expertise but will be owned and governed by the community. We intend to deliver this forever-free Linux distribution this quarter."
